Our craft beer program is doing several group functions in the next couple of weeks, and I’ll pass along the pairings and/or craft beer selections as they are finalized.  It’s exciting to include the world of craft beer in new areas of the resort programming! 

We have a new promotion going in our Fireside Bar that is a daily
 "Après everything"special from 4–6pm: 

Flights & Bites!
If you purchase a Craft Draft Flight, you get 50% off
one of our wonderful Small Plates. 

This promotion is good through September 3,
so come on in and check it out – any day of the week! 

New on our craft beer list this week are several Boston Beer/Samuel Adams selections as promised. Boston Beer is in house this week for their regional meetings, and seems to be having a terrific time! The additional selections on the menu are: 

  • Samuel Adams Boston Lager (draft)
  • Samuel Adams (Barrel Room Collection) American Kriek
  • Samuel Adams (Barrel Room Collection) New World Tripel
  • Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider 

We also have finally rotated the last of our Spring draft handles to the new rotation, and Morland Brewing Old Speckled Hen is on draft with a nitro faucet (extra smooth and creamy!). 

Our Friday Night Featured Flight ($7) will include the new Samuel Adams Barrel Room items: 

  • New Belgium Fat Tire
  • Dogfish Head Saison du BUFF
  • Samuel Adams New World Tripel
  • Samuel Adams American Kriek
  • Stone Smoked Porter 

And our Craft Draft Sampler ($7 on Fridays) will include the following: 

  • Samuel Adams Summer Ale
  • Old Speckled Hen
  • Bristol Laughing Lab (or Sam Adams Boston Lager – depends on timing)
  • Ska Modus Hoperandi
  • Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar 

We look forward to seeing you, and encourage you to come relax on our patio and enjoy the summertime!

As always – complimentary valet is provided for our Fireside and Atwater guests. 

Thank you so much for your support!
